“There is a hunger for innovation across the financial services industry, and our Financial Innovation Labs are all about giving banks a tool to harness and focus that energy, and truly find their unique differentiator” said David Horton, Managing Director and Head of Innovation at Synechron. “The new location allows us to show clients what can be achieved when they combine digital strategy, innovation, user experience, and emerging technologies.”
The labs in Charlotte and New York are now open and fully operational. Some of the key technologies visitors will be able to access include artificial intelligence, blockchain, chatbots, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), mobile apps and biometrics, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), natural language processing, gamification models and digital experiences outlining how the user experience will evolve in a digital-first world.
“Our vision for FinLabs was to go beyond collaborative theoretical discussions and create an interactive, immersive space that truly supports and fosters fintech innovation,” said Faisal Husain, co-founder and CEO of Synechron. “We want to empower our clients to stay ahead of the curve with digital transformation, and we are happy to provide a space where they can learn, get inspired, and see and feel first-hand how these disruptors work and can be experienced.”
